Motorized Blinds / Cellular Shades Automation

I would like to put motorized shades in a couple of rooms in our house and would like them to be integrated with my 2 gig / system for scheduling and setting rules. It looks like there may be a couple of options out there, but I want to make sure I go with the one that has the best chance of working properly. Somfy motors with Graber cellular shades is one quote that I received. Any experience with the Somfy motor and if it has the capability to work with 2 Gig?

I also got a quote from and there motor is through Hunter Douglas. It works on both radio wave and infrared… Do you know if this could work with my system? Would I have to buy any additional transformer/repeater?

Thank you!

Your best bet with for blinds is probably Lutron since they are actively supported by Venetians aren’t currently supported but are coming soon.

One of the following repeater/processor/smart bridge:

  • RadioRA 2 with firmware 6.1.0 or above

  • Caséta Wireless

What features are supported?

  • Plug-in Switch and Dimmer Control
  • In-Wall Switch and Dimmer Control
  • Light Schedules (not available for Caséta)
  • Pico Control
  • Scenes/ Phantom Buttons/ Virtual Buttons
  • Keypad Control
  • Individual Shade Control (Venetians coming soon)
  • Lutron Thermostat (Coming soon)

This user posts that Somfy partially works but I think Lutron shades will work better with
